Dr. Karen Schachterle always knew she wanted to work with animals—specifically exotic pets. Dr. Schachterle attended Purdue University with the goal of becoming an exotic animal veterinarian. She then moved to Houston to complete a one year specialty internship in avian and exotic medicine. Dr. Schachterle loved her internship for the same reasons she loves working at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospitals—the ability to work with a wide variety of species while coordinating care with multiple specialty departments to provide the best treatment possible for her patients.
